One things for sure, 47 Ronin is certainly not your usual Jidaigeki flick. Based on a true Japanese story, albeit with plenty of mystical cinematic embellishment, 47 Ronin finds a group of warriors in disarray.
After a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind, 47 leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and restore honour to their people. Driven from their homes and dispersed across the land, this band of Ronin must seek the help of Kai (Keanu Reeves), a half Japanese/half British warrior they once rejected, as they fight their way across a savage world of mythical beasts and shape shifting witches. One of which is the mesmerising and hot right now Rinko Kikuchi (Pacific Rim).
As this exiled, enslaved outcast becomes their most deadly weapon, he will transform into the hero who inspires the band of outnumbered rebels to seize eternity.
47 Ronin is helmed by visionary director Carl Erik Rinsch (The Gift) and co-stars Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolverine), Kô Shibasaki (Memories Of Matsuko) and Tadanobu Asano (Thor).
47 Ronin will be out on 26 December.
